Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a group of over 100 different chemicals that are formed during the incomplete burning of coal, oil and gas, garbage or other organic compounds. PAHs are known for their carcinogenic, mutagenic and teratogenic properties. PAHs can be found in petrochemicals, rubber, plastics, lubricants, anti rust oil, paints, leather and other products. Rubber and plastics are high risk materials containing PAHs. Tire, electronics and toys are mostly affected by the restriction of PAHs in EU, German and US. EU REACH Annex XVII has placed a restriction on the use of 8 PAHs in tires and extender oil. Tires will not be allowed to be placed on EU market if 8 PAHs exceed certain concentration thresholds listed below. The restriction also applies to the marketing of tires in EU. Benzo[a]pyrene (BaP); Benzo[e]pyrene (BeP);
Benzo[a]anthracene (BaA);
Chrysen (CHR);
Benzo[b]fluoroanthene (BbFA);
Benzo[j]fluoroanthene (BjFA);
Benzo[k]fluoroanthene (BkFA);
Dibenzo[a,h]anthracene (DBAhA).
From 1 January 2010, extender oils shall not be placed on the market or used for production of tires, or parts of tires, if they contain: More than 1mg/kg of Benzo[a]pyrene (BaP), or More than 10mg/kg of the sum of all restricted PAHs This Regulation is applied from 2010 by Petlas Tire.

LABELING

The Tyre Labelling Regulation has been in place since 2012 and provides consumers across Europe with essential information on fuel efficiency, safety, and noise by detailing the tyres’ rolling resistance, wet grip, and external rolling noise. This labelling system provides consumers with transparent and objective information about the quality of the tyres they buy. As a result, they can make better informed choices taking into consideration their type of driving, the climate and road conditions they are likely to encounter. Further to the European Commission’s proposal in May 2018, in November 2019, the European Institutions reached a provisional agreement on the review of the European Tyre Labelling Regulation and the final Regulation (EU 2020/740) was published on 5 June 2020. The new Regulation will enter into force on 25 June 2020 and it will apply from 1 May 2021. Until then, the current tyre label remains in use.
